BVS, you can assume that this is a previously banned member coming back to troll the forums.

Who is it an alter for? I'm not great at picking up on things like that.

We've had a couple of angry alters recently. Frustration over no album? Moon alignment? A big sale on liquor?

This attitude seems to come up a lot, i.e. that Liberals have a conspiracy to elevate black and brown people into a hegemony over whites. I really wonder where this attitude comes from.

It's the same thing as misogynists who think males who support feminism are just doing it to try to hook up with feminist girls. The worldview is so narrow that they don't grasp people genuinely having a different viewpoint; it must be a put on so that they get approval from people who are not like them. It's liberals who are so desperate for the approval of others that they'll ignore what they know to be true (think of how often you hear these people say they are "telling it like it is") and elevate women or people of color above themselves to score points with them.

Sometimes, I think it comes from the perception that in today's society - it is perfectly acceptable (if not outright encouraged) to point out the flaws in "white" culture, but it's unacceptable to point out the flaws in "other than white" culture without being labeled a bigot, racist, Uncle Tom....etc.

At least - I think that is the perception.

Because the large swath of white people who don't understand or refuse to recognize white privilege are a way, way bigger issue in this country than probably anything else in race relations.

Do the Japanese recognize Japanese privilege in Japan?

think of it this way -- what is American culture? and how do you feel when non-Americans like to tell you everything they think you, as a representative of 310m people spread across a vast continent, should be doing differently.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say here, Aeon - could you clarify?

Are you asking if the Japanese are more deserving of privilege in their society than other minority populations?

I honestly try to listen. Usually some things are valid. American culture often seems violent, disposable, and celebrity-worshiping.
